"The contributions Sharon has made to this community are remarkable, and I'm incredibly proud that she has decided to join the Auxilius team."
"I have spent years alongside the biotech and finance accounting community, understanding the unique problems they face, the importance of the work they do, and the passion they bring to their organizations. Auxilius gives this community something new: a comprehensive, real-time, actionable view of their R&D and clinical trial spend," said Sharon.

Auxilius was purpose-built by a team with decades of experience at the intersection of finance and healthcare to address the unique operational, financial, and accounting needs of clinical trials. The company helps biotechs accomplish more by augmenting manual clinical business operations and FP&A/accounting processes with intuitive software that works with a company's existing tech stack to scale alongside their portfolio. This allows companies conducting clinical trials to take control over trial costs and clinical vendors, to manage financial risk, and to optimize spend in pursuit of trial targets.
The company is backed by notable investors including Bain Capital Ventures, Renegade Partners, and XYZ Venture Capital.
